Inventor of the cell phone says “the Android phones are catching up now”

Martin Cooper is the man who’s credited with inventing the world’s first mobile phone made the first call in April of 1973 on a Motorola DynaTAC. In an interview with CNN Cooper said that he knew “someday everybody would have a [cell] phone, but it was hard to imagine that that would happen in my lifetime. And now we’ve got almost five billion phones in the world… Phones have gotten so complicated, so hard to use, that you wonder if this is designed for real people or for engineers.”

In addition, Cooper is rocking several devices. He currently is testing out a $5,000 Vertu, a Motorola Droid and he had an iPhone but gave it to his grandson. He also said that that “the Android phones are catching up now, and the latest version of the Android phones are every bit as good, if not better, than the iPhone.”

What are your thoughts? Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, WinMo, Bada, etc…
